THINK!BTW, Wired News had an article about it in late November, I pointed to it and Jason Lefkowitz got angry and went into motion.

Remember, when you hear that bullshit, they're not wanting you to think about the Fourth and First Amendments which are being dismantled. Do you think Uncle Sam didn't get angry about Pearl Harbor or the Nazis? Yeah I'm angry. And that's the correct way to be.
